Battalion of Saints
Battalion of Saints
BATTALION OF SAINTS was a major catalyst in accelerating the transition from the already upbeat, adrenaline-charged punk of the early 1980s in to feral, snarling hardcore punk of the highest quality and intensity. Pounding distorted pace, live shows dripping with sweat and threat, and a gnarly attitude - BATTALION OF SAINTS stands tall among bands from the era including the Dead Kennedys, Crucifix, Minor Threat, Discharge as well as Southern Lord's Poison Idea, The Offenders and Excel, remaining a crucial part of an immortal and ongoing legacy.
The Nobodys
The Nobodys
Mixing four-chord Ramones-inspired rock anthems with an unadulterated pornography fixation, the Nobodys have sprung forth from the fertile grounds of Colorado Springs to become the reigning Ron Jeremys of the punk rock world!

It all began with their 1996 debut album on Hopeless, "Short Songs for Short Attention Spans." Produced by Joe Queer of The Queers, the record, full of two- minute gems, had fans getting it up from coast to coast as the band brought their live show across the country and around the world, touring the US, Europe and Canada several times over. Of course, this only made fans wet for more, so the Nobodys came again with their 1997 tour de force, "Smell of Victory" (produced by Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals).

Tours with The Queers, Chixdiggit and Guttermouth won over even more converts. By now, collectors were going crazy trying to snatch up all the Nobodys material they could, so the band made it easy by compiling their numerous 7", compilation and demo songs onto one CD, appropriately titled "Greatasstits." (The cover, a close up on the enormous chest of renowned porn star Taylor Wayne, is as unforgettable as the music.) Soon to follow was the inevitable Generation XXX, produced by Donnell Cameron (Bad Religion, Rocket from the Crypt, NOFX) with twenty-five tracks of, what some would call ...sloppy, loud, perverted, snotty, annoying and not to mention overbearing punk rock from Colorado springs... Yeah, that's about right. Tours with The Queers, Chixdiggit and Guttermouth won over even more converts.

The Cryptics
The Cryptics
Andy [left] moved to New Hampshire all the way from Michigan to join permanently. Anthony Calderone [right] joins us from Groveland, MA and picked up bass duties putting me on standalone vocals from here on out. Taylor [back] has been with me since August 2015. It’s been 2 1/2 years since there’s been an official lineup. I’ve never been more excited to play with anyone than these guys. We’re all here for the same reasons. We’re all here for the right reasons. We’re very excited to bring you this new album and an absolutely packed 2016/17. Major thanks to Christian Moquin, Logan Miller & Chris Peters who filled in repeatedly to keep this all moving between lineups.
